Head of school honors

Jill Kessler, head of school at Pardes Jewish Day School, was honored at the school’s gala on Feb. 11 at the Chateau Luxe in Phoenix. About 400 people attended the event, which included a video tribute; a speech by Tim Eckstein, board chair; and a flash mob dance routine done by the teachers to “One Singular Sensation” from the show “Chorus Line.” Here, Kessler stands in front of a display of students’ photos and notes. Kessler will be leaving the school at the end of this school year after 14 years at the helm.
